We received an early review unit which sat by our side for a couple of months handling our routine scanning tasks. The is compatible with all USB 1. Great if they work, as long as they work. The professional user can adjust any operation via numerical input and can precisely monitor the results using the integrated densitometer. Unless you have damaged or dirty film, you probably won’t need those features and scanning will go much faster. This is simply colored line art.

The is compatible with all USB 1. It handled everything we threw at it — line art, 35mm negatives, slides, prints — rather effortlessly, regardless of which scanning application we favored at the moment. Manufacturers achieve resolutions greater than that by stacking CCDs at a half-pixel offset.

The drivers refuse to stay operable, so I have had to uninstall and reinstall ,icrotek over a dozen times? All three of our samples have lots of detail in the shadows and the i managed to hang on to most of it. You can also save the speech in AIFF format and replay it later easily.

The only minor negative item is the fact that it is quite slow, as it has to calibrate itself for each scan. Of course, the lamp intensity is not uniform from edge to edge and all CCD elements are not identical, particularly in regards to noise. Today, after scanning over negatives in my spare time over the past month, I am still very happy with the scanner.


We had no problem with that at all. It also automatically crops the frames for you, making film scanning easier than ever.

Inexpensive flatbeds strain to get their Dmax the maximum recordable density with 4. Oddly enough, scannwr a default profile is how Konica Minolta handles calibration with their high-end II 35mm film scanner.

The basic scanning software included was not very easy to use and tending to produce lower quality images, including automatic correction that over-corrected. Unfortunately, VueScan yet another third party application, but one that is not hardware specific did not recognize the i Top rated Most recent Top rated.

It is very slow. Again, the scanner delivered excellent reproduction, this time in SilverFast.

The Scanner Lock Looking up from underneath As with any flatbed, you have to unlock the imaging unit before you can use it. But it does do a good job of high resolution scanning.

Shortly after install, unit failed to work. The power brick and AC cord need a three-prong plug.
